's members with them. host: john mccain writes a big budget deal is still worth doing. he points out to the history of some of these agreements, most notably with ronald reagan in the 1980's and president bush in 1991 in which republicans agreed to spending cuts that never happened while raising taxes. guest: that's right. there's a little confusion about how much spending cuts happened. it's the same sort of formula both sides are pursuing this time. you lock in the tax increases on the front end. then you come back later, six months, nine months, 12 months and find spending cuts in defense programs and set them into law. if you're among republicans is if you reach an agreement now and agree to tax increases, the spending cuts will get undone or never will be followed through on. that's one of the things that has held back talks, because republicans are skeptical that democrats will follow through. host: charles is on the independent line from colorado. caller: good morning, steve. i listened to it the myopic dogma in this segment over and over. the only people i can blame on this a

house officials say it is unclear what will happen with the sequester. on friday republican senator john mccain said he doesn't see how a deal gets done without addressing these across the board cuts which could cost a lot of contractors their jobs. >> now, the large defense contractors will probably be okay. they have significant cash reserves most of them. the smaller contractors would have trouble getting their lines of credit extended, trouble keeping their employees if they can't be assured of continued employment. >> the only way to avoid the automatic $492 billion in cuts to the pentagon over the next nine years is for congress to make a deal in the next two days. harris? >> peter, thank you. fox weather alert now. a new headache for travelers. tonight a fresh storm system is pummeling the northeast. as you know much of the region and really the rest of the country are recovering from the winter storm that hit earlier in the week. this new round of weather bringing even more snow, freezing rain and strong winds already causing some flight delays and making the roads dangerous. met

the role. all it takes for senators like lindsay graham, john mccain to stand up and say no. one of his nominees would not get through. in some ways if chuck hegel is going to be the person you might end up seeing the white house having to fight doubly hard after what ended up happening to susan rice. there was the impression and the white house said john kerry was just in the mix of susan rice when the secretary of state job. because of the impression they let her withdraw her name increases the pressure that they go fighting for chuck hegel even if they have to lose in fighting. >> if not chuck hegel, who? >> a lot of names on the list. chuck hegel seems to be at the top. the former top official in the defense department, if michelle would be picked and confirmed she would be the first female to head the defense department, other names and defense officials, ashton carter as well as rhode island senator jack reid who doesn't necessarily seem to be resistant to joining the cabinet and whose name would be floated if hegel's isn't. >> thank you as always, sir. >> thanks, craig. >> a new

to be had, but the cia, the criticism from the cia, they're not the only ones criticizing this. senator john mccain who himself was tortured as a p.o.w., says we think this movie glamorizes the role of torture and they insist that is not what happened and not the main reason why they were able to get to osama bin laden. >> and leon panetta said when he was the cia chief they did use enhanced interrogation techniques. i remember when this film was postponed. it was supposed to be released in october, but they thought it would help the president win re-election. so they waited until after the election to release the film instead of doing it in october. >> are you going to see it? >> i'm interested. i think what we do in this business, i'm interesting to see how hollywood is going to portray it. >> as our viewers know, i cover that region for abc news. i guarantee they are not running that film in any theater in either of those countries. so if i'm going to see it, it's going to be here. >> better do it here before they send you back to cover the news in pakistan. >>> coming up, one way to tell

's credibility. does anyone else remember others? there was this notion -- they released this story -- that john mccain was having a relationship with a woman. they had heard in a very sexually provocative dress on the on-line edition, and a dress her up for the next one. this woman was a kind of lobbyist, but there was nothing in there that never proved that mccain was compromised. if mccain had a relationship with this woman, it was between him and his wife, and there was nothing -- he had not touched on anything that was politically important. they sort of backed away from that. it just lowered the temperature, again, of what we might call their bodily communication wait -- weight. there are other cases, the duke across scandal was another embarrassment. -- lacrosse scandal was another embarrassment. they did not cover themselves in glory, but the woman who claimed to be rich was not raped. it goes on like this. they also had a story about why caroline kennedy did not get the nomination, and that is when they also mentioned that she did not pay her taxes or something, but nobody put any recor

for obama? guest: they thought at the highest level that there were during to win. john that's different from mccain. guest: they believed their own internal polling which showed a different type of the electorate than what actually showed up. ronny thought he was going to win. even on election night, they were still picking about the fight. when the election was first called by nbc for president obama, the romney campaign began the process and they had been literally making the phone calls out to start the process of moving down to the podium to concede the presidency. they stopped because they had hoped that ohio was still too close to call. for over an hour, we report that history was on hold and they hit the pause button. it was not until well up to midnight that he finally did concede. he did not what the networks to have the last word. he wanted to make sure the votes were counted. we had this remarkable scene where the romney campaign it's a sweep in the west talking to senator portman on speaker phone and they're talking about the possibility of calling ryan down to the podium an
